The rose garden of Moonacre has an arbour and heart-shaped rose-beds.  And if that sounds a little over top, wait till you get to the geraniums: wall to wall pink, though this divides two of the main female characters as one of them loathes pink as much as the other loves it.

‘Just below her was a tangled rose-garden, with a rose-coloured arbour in the middle of it, and grass paths winding between heart-shaped rose-beds.’
